§ Lord Laird
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Privy Seal on 13 February (WA 144), whether they (a) have not consulted and (b) will not consult any legal opinions obtained during the time of the devolved Northern Ireland Executive. [HL1755]
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
The Government are not aware of any occasion since suspension on which they have consulted legal opinions given to the devolved administration in breach of the convention referred to in the Written Answer by the Lord Privy Seal on 13 February (WA 144), and they do not expect circumstances to arise in which they would wish to do so.
